Quote:I could give you tons of well established, very upscale hotel spots but it doesn't sound like you want anything to stuffy. Look into the Hotel Gansevoort. It's in the Meatpacking District but since it sounds like you may want a trendy/happening/wannabe (no offense intended to you) spot (although meatpacking has peaked & can be extremely pretentious it still has its good nights and spots). There's a new Japanese restaurant, Ono in the hotel and it's across the street from Spice Market, which gets packed even at 7:00. There are tons of clubs in the area, but you are too young for most and some places have a very strict door even if you are of age, especially for men. Juillard is a bit far (Lincoln Center area) but quite easy to get to via the express A train from 14th and 8th (one block away from the hotel). Of course you can always cab it. The new Ferragamo flagship is on 5th avenue in Midtown (I think 53rd st). There's a Ferragamo store in Soho as well, no sure if it closed already....Givenchy is on Madison and 63rd....I'd suggest you check out the Co-op floor (5) at Barneys as well if that interests you.
